My Card For Debby

Good Morning Chickees!
I was playing again last night while cooking dinner and these are what I have come up with so far. 
The card above is going to Debby who is on the design team at Send A Smile 4 Kids....  You will see her picture on my sidebar.  Click on the link above to learn of her tragic accident and how we bloggers are needed to send cards to inspire her.  Her address is also listed there.
I started with white 110 lb. cardstock from Staples and using Ranger Distress Inks I came up with the background.  The leaves were stamped with Walnut Distress and I used Perfect Pearls, Cafe, to give them colour and sheen.  Once the paper was dried I stamped the sentiment in Walnut as well and used clear embossing powder to give it texture.  Easy Peasy!

This second card is one I played with using a different sentiment.  It looks so pretty IRL!

Here is a photo of the Perfect Pearls taken with the light angle different ...

The recipe is as follows:
Stamps: Rubber Stamped Small and Big Maple
Sentiment:  Top card - Stampin' Up!
                  Bottom card - Stampendous
Inks:  Distress - Wild Honey, Walnut, Frayed Burlap, Ripe Persimmon, Seedless Preserves
Perfect Pearls - Cafe collection... I LOVE this set!!
Clear embossing powder

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!  The Canadian Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I can hardly wait to dive into the turkey!
